Connector for Outlook: Changing Outlook 'Style' to Comms Express 'Style'

When configuring Connector for Outlook to create a package, the option in the Mail tab to set IMAP Folder Name Mapping Options has the following choices:

  • Outlook style (Inbox,Drafts,Deleted Items, Sent Items)
  • Communications Express style (Inbox,Drafts,Trash, Sent)

The question came up: what if you had previously chosen the "Outlook style" and now you want to change to the "Communications Express style?"

One way is to re-run the package by changing the option but that might not be convenient. Is there a way to modify the configuration to change the Mapping option without re-running the package?

The answer is yes. To get the Communications Express style folders, here are the steps:

  1. Make a backup copy of the "C:\\Documents and Settings\\username\\Local Settings\\Application Data\\Sun\\Outlook Connector\\sjoc_folders.map" file.
  2. Copy the contents of "C:\\Documents and Settings\\username\\Local Settings\\Temp\\Sun Outlook Connector\\uwc_folders.map".
  3. Paste the contents into the "C:\\Documents and Settings\\username\\Local Settings\\Application Data\\Sun\\Outlook Connector\\sjoc_folders.map" file, that is, overwrite it.
  4. Delete the pst file for profile. (Profile Properties | Advanced tab ). The default location is "C:\\Documents and Settings\\username\\Local Settings\\Application Data\\Sun\\Outlook Connector."
  5. Log in to verify the new profile and to see the desired change.
